Nine Eagles fall short of our top ten into the second tier of former draftees.

Who would have thought that Matt Barkley would still be in the league in 2022 and on the roster of a contender (the Buffalo Bills)? Vinny Curry didn’t make our top ten. Neither did Joe Walker, Jordan Matthews, Prince Tega Wanogho, Mack Hollins, and Matt Pryor.

Sitting right outside of our top ten is Nick Foles and Dennis Kelly. There isn’t an Eagles fan on Planet Earth that can’t talk about the former for hours. The latter was a part of a trade on August 16th of 2016. He was shipped off to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

Kelly’s played in 84 regular-season games since then with 34 starts and is STILL in the NFL. He’s currently on the Indianapolis Colts’ roster. DGB played in 15 games for the Eagles with seven starts. The result was 36 receptions, 392 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. His final game was on New Year’s Day in 2017. You do the math.

Oh well, we’ll throw that one in the category of failed Eagles experiments at the wide receiver position and move on. Without further adieu, here are the top ten former Eagles draftees who are now playing for other NFL franchises.
